- Recognition of Degree
EU University degrees acquired through studying in colleges are recognized professionally and holders of such degrees have the same professional rights as those awarded by the Greek formal education system. The recognition covers both Bachelor degrees (of at least three years duration), and Master degrees. College graduates holding degrees acquired through collaborations with EU Universities may be recruited, paid and promoted as graduates or postgraduates. They may also participate in the exams of the Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection (ASEP).
Following the enactment of Law 4093|2012 (Government Gazette Issue 222 A), the completion of the legislative act (Gazette Issue 229 A and 237 Gazette Issue A) and the recent amendment to the Law 4111|2013 (Official Gazette 18 Issue A), the recognition of European degrees awarded following studying at a Greek College cooperating with a European University extends. Furthermore, the Ministerial Decree 38/2010 is amended and all EU University degrees are professionally equivalent with those awarded by Greek public Universities. In practice, this allows college graduates holding degrees acquired through collaborations with EU Universities to have the same professional rights with graduates of Greek Universities.
The body in charge is the Council for the Recognition of Professional Qualifications (SAEP) of the Ministry of Education. The Council for the Recognition of Professional Qualifications (SAEP) (Official Gazette 527 / Issue Y.O.D.D.-11.18.2012) is responsible for examining applications for recognition of professional qualifications.
Taking the above into consideration and following a recent decision of the Council for the Recognition of Professional Qualifications (SAEP), an IST’s graduate was granted professional equivalence of the degree, “Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Management Information Systems” of the University of Hertfordshire (United Kingdom), to the degree of graduates of the Accounting and Finance faculty of the Athens University of Economics & Business, in the context of the national education system, with the terms and conditions of the current Greek legislation, without any additional compensational measures.
It is worth noted that IST’s graduates follow the procedures required by the Greek legislation for the recognition of professional degree equivalence and are granted professional equivalence of their degree with the terms and conditions of the current Greek legislation without any additional compensational measures.
